CDA Buying Advice – Recommended Serving Temperatures

Our dual zone wine coolers feature two separately controlled temperature storage areas so that you can simultaneously store red and white wine in your cooler. The ideal temperature for red wine is between 12°C and 19°C, while whites should be stored between 8°C and 12°C. Click here to view our wine storage guide.

Our range of wine coolers can be adjusted to any temperature from 5°C to 20°C so that you can follow the recommended storage guidelines specific to your type of wine.
